The amateur film buff in me won't let this opportunity go by to correct the Portland Mercury when you get it wrong. The Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga remake of "A Star Is Born" is actually the fourth remake, not the third as you stated. The first (non-musical) version was the Janet Gaynor "A Star Is Born," then the Judy Garland/James Mason version, then the Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson version. It's not hard, Merc — get it right!
[Thanks for the heads up, anonymous amateur film buff! But as we wrote, the Lady Gaga version was the "third remake." The Janet Gaynor version was the original and therefore not referred to as a remake.—eds]
